Federal authorities are now probing the sexual harassment claims against former Gov. Andrew Cuomo that forced him from office, The Post has learned.
The stunning development is contained in a legal services contract signed in October and released by the state Comptroller’s Office in response to a Post Freedom of Information Law request.
The contract notes previously revealed Department of Justice investigations into the Cuomo administration’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, its cover-up of nursing home deaths and Cuomo’s $5.1 coronavirus memoir.
But it adds, “DOJ has also undertaken an inquiry related to sexual harassment claims made against the then Governor.”
